Linglestown Gazette: Green space, zoning and you

Green space, zoning and you

As you’ve probably noticed, green space – sometimes referred to as open space – is rapidly disappearing in the Linglestown area and throughout Lower Paxton Township.

According to a recent newspaper story, township officials and residents have been working for more than a year to come up with revised zoning regulations to save green space. (Zoning determines what kind of development is allowed in various sections of Lower Paxton.)

“[The proposal] does a better job at protecting neighborhoods from incompatible development. It protects Blue Mountain. It protects the village of Linglestown,” said Frederick W. Lighty, chairman of the township planning commission.

The township supervisors will hold a public on the proposed zoning rules on Tuesday, July 11 at 7 p.m. in the Township Municipal Center, 425 Prince Street.

Be advised that the township supervisors can vote on the zoning changes Tuesday night immediately after the public hearing.
